Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America president, reports great news for Nintendo fans: since the release of Mario Kart 8, 15,000 Wii U systems have been sold per day.
“In the two weeks prior to the launch, versus what we’ve seen now following the launch of Mario Kart 8, we’re selling at a daily rate four times higher than where we were before.”
This report from Reggie reveals a key truth, one that gamers have reported all along. If Nintendo puts out great games, buyers will come. People love Mario-based games and the most prolific of the series tends to be Mario Kart and Smash Brothers.
